The undermining of support points In this position we see two centrally placed Bishops facing two centrally placed Knights. The contrast is obvious. The Bishops would still sweep the centre of the board if they stood on h1 and a1, but the Knights must have support points if they are to maintain themselves in play. The support points here are insecure, and are speedily undermined.} 1. Ba1 { Preserving the the Bishop from exchange} (1. Bxf5 $4 Nf3+) 1... Rg8 (1... h5 2. Bxe5 dxe5 3. Bxf5 gxf5 4.
